So I received my first Simpsons brush for Christmas this year and it's exactly what I was looking for. After splurging on myself by getting the Vulfix 2234 I was really interested in something on the opposite end of the spectrum. Enter the Commodore X2. The Super hair on the Vulfix is extremely plush, soft, and luxurious and many term it floppy. The X2 in Best has very similar specs if not the same when it comes to knot and loft (approximately 22K/47L) but it behaves completely opposite to the Vulfix. The X2 has plenty of backbone while retaining very soft tips. I use both brushes to face lather and enjoy both. They just give different experiences and as long as one understands this, then they can easily co-exist in the same shave den! Here are my PreBloom shots with comparisons to my Frank Finest like I did with the Vulfix: After 3 uses the bloom is really developing so I'll try to get some pictures of it soon. The Commodore is a great brush to enter into the Simpsons family with and I highly recommend it. Something tells me, though, that it will not remain my lone Simpson for very long.
